Mike Huckabee Threatens To Leave The GOP Over Gay Marriage

Add Mike Huckabee's name to the list of right wingers who are in a huff following the Supreme Court's decision to reject the appeals from five states on gay marriage.

Don't let the door hit you in the ass Huck. Does this mean we can scratch his name off of the list of Republican grifters pretending they want to be president in 2016?

It seems Mike Huckabee is none too happy with the Supreme Court for refusing to take up the gay marriage appeals and went carping to the wingnuts on the American Family Association's broadcast of Today's Issues this Monday.

Mike Huckabee Threatens To Leave The GOP Over Gay Marriage:

One guest on the program was Mike Huckabee, who began his interview by threatening to leave the Republican Party if the GOP does not take a stand against the Supreme Court's decision yesterday not to hear appeals of lower court rulings striking down gay marriage bans in several states.

Incensed by the decision, Huckabee declared that "I am utterly exasperated with Republicans and the so-called leadership of the Republicans who have abdicated on this issue," warning that by doing so the GOP will "guarantee they're going to lose every election in the future."

"Guarantee it," he said before proclaiming that the Republicans are going to "lose guys like me and a whole bunch of still God-fearing, Bible-believing people" if the party does not stand and fight on the issues of gay marriage and abortion.

"I'm gone," Huckabee warned. "I'll become an independent. I'll start finding people that have guts to stand. I'm tired of this":
